Marcaux delivers an acoustic rendition of “Cedar Creek” in his new video

“When hearts break, no, they don’t break even.”

Following the first single of 2019 "Harm," Long Island artist Marcaux flips the script to show a much more vulnerable side on "Cedar Creek."

The song uses a conversation Marcaux had with his best friend as a vehicle to share with his fans the tough decisions he's faced while juggling anxiety and his addictions. The quick flow on his second verse drives home the pressure he's undergone and the quick decisions he's had to make, like moving homes and attempting to write love songs, only to end up with the blues.

"I think this song lyrically is the most difficult song I’ve ever written as far as talking about the things I’m not proud of," he explained in an email. "So because of that I want the lyrics to be as prevalent as possible. Sure the song itself is minimal, but I didn't want people to focus on the visuals as far as a ‘music video’ is concerned. So what better way to focus on both sound, and lyrics, than an acoustic version of the song."
